The Company intends to use the net proceeds of any such offering of the Notes to repay certain indebtedness and for general corporate purposes. The Company may at any time elect to no longer pursue a possible Notes offering.
The Notes have not been registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws and, unless so registered, may not be offered or sold in the United States except pursuant to an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws.
This announcement does not constitute an offer to sell, or a solicitation of an offer to buy, any security and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in which such offering, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
